1) For me it's FINALLY FEELING COMFORTABLE IN A BIKINI! I've been wearing one for years but felt like people were looking at me as the "fat chick in the bikini."

2) Been size 12-14 for as long as I can remember... smaller clothes!

3) I know that I once weighed as much as my boyfriend ( no more : ) but feeling comfortable telling him how much I weigh (not letting go near this forum because of my scale)

4) Workout shorts not poking into my fat causing "dents."

5) Oh and gotta reiterate Thighs not rubbing together. That's a big one... looking forward to belly going away... not totally away but definitely instead of rolls

The list could go on forever but I'll save some for others!

Things I won't miss...

1. Sitting on the inside of the booth at a restaurant so people don't stare at my fat rolls.
2. Sucking in my gut when putting on my jeans.
3. Avoiding family photos.
4. X-Large Shirts
5. Feeling inferior to my thinner friends.
6. Lights out during nookie... LOL
7. All my jiggling parts in general!

What a wonderful list, I don't think I can top this one! However, I'll add a couple of my own things I won't miss, after seconding all of yours-

1. Not being able to cross my legs or sit Indian-style comfortably.
2. Getting up from the floor having to use nearby furniture as crutches.
3. Making excuses to get out of get-togethers with family and friends because I didn't want to be seen (I even skipped 2 family reunions cuz I didn't want everyone to see how disgusting I was. Now I can't wait for the next one!)
4. Being tired all the time.
5. High blood pressure.
6. Chest pains.
7. High cholesterol.
8. Having to 'roll' out of bed.
9. Yo-yo dieting.
10. And making excuses as to why I could never lose weight.

And a couple more.

11. Huge clothes.
12. Being ashamed of myself in general.

Excellent lists you guys! Lots I missed! These are great reminders as to just why we say no to cheesecake and don't give in to the temptation to skip just "one more" workout! :-)

Thinking about food, evil food, where I could get it and not get noticed. How many times did I go through the drive through this week?

The bags of shame, as dh and I used to call them, evidence of my drive through obsession. Usually a dunkin donuts bag tucked inside a mcdonalds one.

Yep, reading this stuff is even more incentive to keep going. I'm mostly glad that I don't have to sit around making lame excuses for myself anymore as to why I couldn't lose weight; "my metabolism must be too slow, it must be my genetics, I don't have the time or money to buy the proper food, I must have a manfunctioning thyroid," blah blah blah.

When the whole time I was just plain lazy and didn't have the motivation. I wasn't trying hard enough, plain and simple.

i wont miss:

1. Faking a migraine for a pool party.
2. Feeling bad whenever I order a dessert out with a crowd
3. Only going shoe shopping with my friends (because I cant wear the clothes at their stores)
4. Wondering does this make my bum look bigger
5. Feeling inferior when I show up to a race, because Im the largest, or at least feel like the largest runner there.

Very refreshing to hear! I made the same lame excuses. There is a thyroid condition that runs in the females on my mom's side. Do you know how often I've hoped my weight was thyroid related? However my thyroid tests just fine. Go figure--the only fat chick in the family and I don't have the hereditary thyroid malfunction! LOL
